Bio and Links
Bio Photo Being a Find A Grave photo contributor is the most rewarding & constructive hobby I've ever taken up.. You have my consent to use any of the headstone or plot photos that I've loaded to memorials.. If I've created a memorial for a family member or friend of yours, I'm more than willing to transfer them to you.. I'm not looking to own high numbers of memorials, my intentions as a contributor are.. first.. to help document the cemeteries.. and secondly.. to help family members find their ancestors more easily.. So even if you don't necessarily fit the Find A Grave 'guidelines' for requesting a transfer, don't let that deter you from asking.. My feelings are that if you've taken the time to contact me with a correction or addition to a memorial, then you qualify...

I also want to give special mention to my Find A Grave friend, Kris Daugherty/OSU1988. Kris has been a tremendous help to me by providing me with cemetery records for Williams County. These records have enabled me to add my photos to memorials with confidence. As many of you know, sometimes we encounter stones that have been so worn down by time and weather that they are unreadable. Her records allow me the ability to cross check the photos with placement of the graves and to identify those unreadable stones. THANK YOU KRIS!!!

Also, I came across this poem on another contributor's profile and it perfectly conveys my thoughts and feelings as I walk the cemeteries.. so with his permission I've borrowed it from his page and here it is..

THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY
BY THELMA GREENE REAGAN
Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where other cried
For Loved Ones whose lives are stilled.
Today our hearts were touched
By graves of tiny babies;
Snatched from the arms of loving kin,
In the heartbreak of the ages.
Today we saw where the grandparents lay
In the last sleep of their time;
Lying under the trees and clouds -
Their beds kissed by the sun and wind.
Today we wondered about an unmarked spot;
Who lies beneath this hollowed ground?
Was it a babe, child, young or old?
No indication could be found.
Today we saw where Mom and Dad lay.
We had been here once before
On a day we'd all like to forget,
But will remember forever more.
Today we recorded for kith and kin
The graves of ancestors past;
To be preserved for generations hence,
A record we hope will last.
Cherish it, my friend; preserve it, my friend,
For stones sometimes crumble to dust
And generations of folks yet to come
Will be grateful for your trust.

RE: Sarah L. Vroman Tefft
Thank you for your fast response and interest, I do have a little bit of information for Peter C Vroman you are correct Lovina Vroman #103038168 was Peter C. wife she moved to St. Joseph County
Michigan and lived with her son Peter F. & Emma Vroman. Peter C Vroman's will was filed in Bridgewater, Williams, Ohio on Feb.20,1877, I have a copy of that but it has no burial information, I also found in 1870 census around Nettle Lake, Northwest, Williams county. I have found his children also living in Hills Dale County Michigan and over in Indiana.
His father was (Martinus B.) Martin Vrooman Memorial#100507799

I also was thinking he might be buried on his farm, if so do you have any advice on trying to locate the sight or have you ever heard of someone knocking on doors to get permission to look for the sight any help or suggestions is greatly appreciated.
once again Big THANK YOU;

George S. Moyer #99270229 & Nina C. Moyer #99270268
Sandi it is dlwj writing again. Found George S. and Nina C. Moyer's memorials. They are both children of Henry W. and Dianna (Zeiters) Moyer. That is the couple that donated the land for the Walnut Grove Cemetery. I thought it was interesting that both George and Nina had individual gravestones and also one large one together. Is there any writing on the other sides of the large stone? From the photo posted on their memorials of the four stones, I am wondering whose stone is the small one to the left? Just for your information the memorial #87172965 for Mary Ezemiah Moyer Sampson that you took the gravestone photos for is also the daughter of Henry W. and Dianna Moyer. Are there other Moyers in Walnut Grove? Hope you can find Henry W. & Dianna Moyer. Thank you for your time. You can rely at gmadlgpab@gmail.com

Gravestones of Henry W. Moyer and Dianna Moyer
As of now Henry and Dianna Moyer are not in Find A Grave. They are buried in the Walnut Grove Cemetery, Williams Co., OH. They were the ones that donated the land for this cemetery. Is there any way you can photograph their gravestones and add them to Find A Grave? They are the parents of Memorial #87172965. As a relative I would appreciate it very much. Thank you. dlwj
